There are basically three sections of this book: youth / first love, nature, and wisdom. I have always turned to paper and pen when excited, in wonder, or distressed. I have found that writing down the obtrusive thoughts frees the mind. I have chosen poetry as the venue. Hopefully, you too can relate. I hope that you may glean some insight into yourself and find peace, joy, and some wisdom. I may add that some of the poetry is simple and obvious. Others need to be read more than once. As in a painting, the observer gets out of it what relates to her. So too in poetry. You may read a poem and feel something entirely different from why I wrote it. That is just fine. My purpose was personal. Your purpose could be that the poem stimulates a remembrance of a time in your life that can be relived. Enjoy.
I am a Native Californian. I was born in the Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara. I have lived in Avenue, Maryland; Athens, Georgia; Klamath Falls, Oregon;the middle of Manhattan, New York City; Studio City, Encino, and Westlake Village California. I attended the University of Colorado at Boulder. I was going to be a famous secretary in San Francisco, California, having gone to Katherine Gibbs Secretarial School. Wrong! I was married the day after I graduated from college. The journey begins. Through my poetry, you will know me in depth.
